66047 & 66004 Wolvercote 27 March 2023

Instead of a pair of DB red Class 66s, the 6E11 11:47 Appleford Sidings to Milford West Sidings containerised flyash empties produced a blue and a green loco on 27 March 2023. This was not to be missed, despite the fact that in the Oxford area it would be very backlit. 66047 Maritime Intermodal Two & vegetable oil powered 66004 are pictured passing Wolvercote, running 23 minutes late. The late running only slightly improved the lighting angle, but more importantly the sun was behind some high cloud, which has produced a much better result.
